-<The Galactic Trade Confederacy>- >GTC<
« on: September 21, 2008, 11:40:12 am »
With the crumbling of the Alliance of Honour, the Kratairian government were put in a bit of a tough position.  They had gained the people's support for the joint venture on the grounds that it would bring added prosperity and wealth, among other benefits.  Of course, one of the most important points for the governing body was to improve the Kratair's standing within the Galactic community, an interest which was not shared with most citizens.

Over the years of their involvement in the alliance, things had not gone quite as forseen.  Instead of the large boon to Kratairian culture and economy it was planned to cause, it dragged them into the tail end of the REDSTAR conflict, and into the forefront of the Communicant War.  And so, the estranged arrangement created for the benefit of the Kratairian people resulted in the death of thousands of those same.

Hence the tricky position the senate was in.  They refused to allow the Kratair to sever their connects to the Galactic community and return to their previously nomadic ways, drifting through the cosmos, yet it would be nigh impossible to gain the support needed to join a new alliance.

Which is when the idea was raised that if they could not join a union, why not create their own.  One with their own interests and agendas taking forefront, with trade, joint research ventures and technological advancement taking precedence over trivial matters such as squabling over personal rights or ecological protection.  Hence the Galactic Trade Confederacy was born.

It would serve the purpose the Kratair people desired, bringing wealth and information to not only them, but their allies in the GTC.  The Confederacy would work together to improve the standard of life for all parties.  Of course, the mistakes of past alliances were taken into consideration.  There would be no mutual protection agreements, as they only escalated what could potentially be small conflicts.  The GTC would take no stand on the personal civics and traditions of it's members.  If a race chose to believe in slavery, by all means allow them, as long as it did not become a problem for the Confederacy as a whole.

And so, with murmurs of agreement echoing throughout the senate, bill was passed, and the ball set in motion.  Over the next 10 years, ship production was put to a halt, as the great Kratairian shipyards went about building a project of great importance.  With a diameter of 1500 kilometers, the great station that would be capital of the Confederacy took form.  Dubbed "Rolston" from the Kratairian word for prosperity, the final preparations were made for its official opening. 

As the first citizens were moved in, with many more anticipated in the comming years, lights lit up throughout the ecumenopolis for the first time as the great cogs of industry were set into motion.  As the Kratairian fleets floated lazily over the surface of Rolston, they looked down upon the technological splendor they had created.  A city only rivaled by the great Beyron.

And with that, the call was sent out.  An invitation across known space to all those who wished to take part.  The great tower that would house the senate of the Galactic Trade Confederation was in preparation for the opening ceremony...

((I would check your spelling, it's not like you to make so many mistakes))

The Chief Random-Elect "Zhukop" heard the news of the alien transmission, early analysis showed it to be an invitation of sorts, a call to join together, to trade.  The Flagship of the Milikan fleet, called "Hukuopo", was being retrofitted with a prototype FTL drive, they were to find out the meaning of this message.  Vice Random-Elect "Liuonomo" was going along, to supervise the first contact effort.  The crew was to be mainly diplomatic, guards were taken along to ensure the safety of the people going.  Engineers, artisans and scientists were also going, as the message included the trade of technology.  The engines kicked into gear, and they headed for the source of the message.



They arrived at the source momentarily, a great station surrounded by a fleet of ships.  The Vice RE and the captain gave the Flick of Agreement, and opened communications.

//We are the Milika of Ju in the system Youkop, and we have received your signal, please respond,// and so they waited for the station's response.

As the message came through, workers in the on-surface control room relayed back a response.

//Welcome delegates of the Milika people.  We graciously welcome you to Rolston, home of the Galactic Trade Confederation.  We assume you are here for the opening ceremony and first meeting of the GTC and as such we have given you clearence to land over at the North Senate Landing Pad.  The coordinates should be showing up on your computer now.  Following your landing, an escort will be by shortly to bring you to the senate house for the ceremony.  Have a nice day!//

The ship then descended onto the Rolston station towards the programmed coordinates.  Once on the landing pad, the 15 diplomats on board poured from forthwith and then followed the escort towards the senate house.  The captain was also with them, and ran up to the front and asked the escort a question.

~"How many others are coming to this ceremony business?  I would hate to think of us as the only ones to come."~

// Good Morning, Evening or Midday, this is the Mon-Krai relations council, our Traders have voted to join the GTC. Our Technology is only rivaled by that of the ancients and the Wexxians, however trading with the outside has been a problem. We have, however, denounced our previous actions against you in the Communicant war, and our Leaders have deemed it fit to extend our appolagies and negotiate with you on a fresh start. We present our standard gift of a fruit basket, a meat and fish banquet, and 10 high tech battle cruisers. Goodbye //

The control room worker's smiled at the Mon-Krai's message.  So the Confederation was already serving to repair the damage of the Communicant War.  They quickly sent out a reply.

//Your gifts are greatly appreciated and we are certain that with your joining of the confederacy they will be paid back a thousand fold.  Until then, you are invited to land on the surface of Rolston.  From there you will be escorted to the opening ceremony of the GTC's senate house and trade floors in the Great Tower.//  With that, the coordinates for the landing garage was transmitted to the Mon-Krai ships. //Thank you, and have a good day.//

Meanwhile, the Milika's escort turned and smiled at the delegates.  "I'm afraid at this point we still don't know how many we can expect, but the beauty of this system is that it is simple for new races to join us in their own time.  Also, while we will not reap the same benefits we might once the Confederacy grows, we will still gain much from even a smaller group."

As they approached the tower housing the senate house, it's massive scale truly became apparent.  With a total height of 100 kilometers, stretching up from the lowest levels of the artificial planet, it still towered above them on their pathway raised high above much of the city.  As they made their way to the nearest entrance, the pair of guards on either side of the door, nodded in silent respect to the delegates as they passed through.

The Naescvor leader Greathas Mandrel had caught wind from some of the contact civilizations he had on the eatern fringe of his empire that a new alliance was forming among the greater and much further a field races of a similar mindset to his own, quick to grab at any oppertunities he quickly sent out a radio signal:
//Greetings Kratair, (muffled sounds) is that right i'm sur, (more rumbling) no... you are sure it's Kratair, alright them, ahem, we the Naescvor would like to arrange that we become part of your Galactic Trade Confederacy, you may not know much about us and we may be small, but we feel we can bring what you ask, the will to prosper and an economic drive.\\

Still hard at work, the communications controlers sent out a similar message to the Naescvor as the others, bidding them welcome and beckoning them down to the surface.  Things were going better than they anticipated.  They had not expected so many races to respond so quickly, but the more the merrier right?

Meanwhile, the Mililka arrived on one of the main trade floors where the meeting conference would be held.  From there they would head to the opening of the senate house later, but for now, there was a banquet and entertainment set up for the delegates.  There were already some Kratairian delegates milling around, who made their way over to introduce themselves as the others entered.

The Milika captain made his way back to the front of the group of delegates, followed closely by the vice RE.     
The vice RE was headed for the entertainment, whilst the captain headed for the food.  He sat down among the alien delegates.  He asked them the name of their species, which turned out to be Kratair.  He tried to strike up a friendly conversation with the delegates, which was difficult with the language barrier.  He decided to skip right to the preliminary business.

~"You built this station, yes?  It is my hope that by entering this trade alliance, that it will benefit both our races."~  The captain was truly optimistic.

The particular delegate he was talking to was nodded in agreement as he sipped his drink.  "That's the plan." he said, "The entire concept of the Confederacy was put into action with the intent of mutual prosperity among all parties."  He motioned to the huge room the were in.  This is just one of a number of trade floors in the tower, each meant for a varriety of purposes, ranging from market places, stock trading, conferences and such.  Above us on the upper floors are the senate house and the delagates' penthouses."

He continued on, clearly proud of what had been achived in the construction of Rolston and excited for what would come.  "The city is to be a central for industry and commerce in the galaxy.  I figure it's about time somebody gave Beyron some competition, eh?  So far we've moved in about..." he paused for a moment to think, "... I think about 30 million citizens, and that's nowhere near even a thousandth of what the planet can hold.  Now I don't know if you've heard yet or if it's going to be stated during the senate meeting later or something, but your people, and all other members of the Conferderacy as well, are free to move in as well.  For now we have free housing and whatnot for anyone interested.  We've gotta get that population up and get the economy moving.  That's the plan at least."

Greathas had turned up personally to oversee whatwould be his races first real step into the big leaques of inter galctic polotics and economy. He'd been busy moving around the confrence floor of the great tower bustling among representatives and stock merchants and even a few builders finishing of work on the interior. He'd been acompanied by a large grouo of his buisness parters eager to make their mark on the cinfedaracy aswell, he was waiting for the proceedings to start with barely covered impatience.

((It's "Beyon", not "Beyron".  Plus all of those other little grammar annoyances.))

~"Our people would be very interested in living aboard this station.  It would benefit you best, we aim to be nice and accepting to all.  We are not to be deprived, however, as this would be an enormous opportunity for the Milika.  Being a founding member of this alliance, we might have to create a holiday for this day."~ The captain was getting excited about all this, it was bigger than he expected.

((Ah yes, thank you for pointing that error out for me.))

The Kratairian delegate smiled at the Milika's excitement.  It was a good sign that some races other than the Kratair were eager to get involved in this.  Of course, it was expected but still, you never know.

Meanwhile, a waiter approached Greathas, noting his obvious impatience, and nodded in respect to the Naescvorian leader.  "I can see you're in a hurry to get to business, but don't fret sir.  Official matters will be underway soon.  We simply anticipate the arrival of one or two more parties.  And apparently the Mon-Krai have expressed interest in the Confederation and should be landing soon.  Until then, feel free to help yourself to any and all of the annemnties here."

(( This post turned out to be quite a bit longer than I expected. I wanted to do a bit of "before-story" just to give an image of the Xajorkithian political process, and got a bit carried away. Expect further posts to be of a more reasonable length ;) ))

HELIOTROPE/CRUCIBLE PRIORITY COMMUNIQUE - FOR URGENT DISCUSSION
FROM: R&DWPC: SIGXENO
FAO: ALL XUSG COMMITTEES

Message received 0300:22:8:706
Message type: Vocal, quadrature phase encoding
Contents: Message and language database
Message contents concern alliance,
'Galactic Trade Confederacy',
invitation to attend opening ceremony
+ alliance proceedings.

PERSONAL ADDENDUM:
This it! Cerix's callipers, this is first contact! Wheeeeee!


Xerut Cennil, inter-group liason for the Research and Development Working Practices Committee, ran a hand through her crest agitatedly as she stared out at the assembled delegates of the Steering Committee. A thick silence filled the chamber - a rare occurance indeed, which only served to highlight the unprecidented importance of the meeting. Over her head hovered a flat holodisplay showing the message lately received by the Xenocommunications SIG. She clicked her mandibles, once, twice, then spoke, her voice amplified to fill the chamber. "It is the unanimous consensus of the R&D WPC that we should attend these proceedings. We only know a little about our corner of the galactic neighbourhood. Even if we don't join their alliance, we should make our presence felt."

A cough from Jaletro Terill, the deeply purple-furred Chairman of the Civil and Legal. "It's all very well making ourselves known on the galactic stage, but what if we draw the attention of aggressive entities down on us? Established players on the galactic field will certainly have technology in advance of our own. We can't afford to expose ourselves to such risk!" Immediately the silence in the chamber was replaced by the babble of dozens of voices all shouting at once.

Xerut pressed twelve claw-tips to the side of her head and wheezed an exasperated sigh. It was going to be a long night..

Xajorkithian Uniform Steering Committee
Proceeding 83362993806 of season 903862
Motion: A delegation should be sent to the opening of the Galactic Trade Confederacy capital.
Council vote: 68% for, 30% against, 2% abstention
Popular vote: 98% overall turnout; 56% for, 44% against
MOTION CARRIED


Even with the vote passed, the squabbling wasn't over, as each group struggled to get a member onto the limited spaces aboard the prototype craft which were being hurriedly assembled to venture to the GTC's inaugural meeting. Two were being sent, in the hope that at least one would complete the jump successfully. The whole of Xajorkis watched with bated breath as the spaceships, at a safe distance on the far side of Xajorkis' still-barren moon, charged up their engines.

"Three. Two. One. Engage."

Miraculously, both ships arrived intact. Xerut Cennil, now Expedition Leader, looked over the contact procedures the Steering Committe had produced. It was a complicated flow-chart which would cover two strides if printed. Let's see, where do we start? Xerut thought, "In the event that the destination system contains greater than 50 but less than 100,000 craft with..." Oh, forget this. With a derisive tap on her console, she dismissed the document and opened a broad-beam communication.

"Greetings, delegates of the Galactic Trade Confederation. We represent the Uniform Steering Committee of Xajorkis, and are here in answer to your invitation. We're very interested to learn what we can offer each other."
This is a public service announcement.

Another race calling in, again given clearance and directions to the landing pad, again informed of the escort and ceremony that will await them.  It was almost time to get the show on the road.  All they had to do was wait for the Mon-Krai and now these newcomers, the Xajorkis, to land.  Then the real interesting matters could begin.

The Xajorkithian craft fell into formation as they approached the landing pad. The main reason for this was to facilitate secure narrow-beam communications between the two halves of the delegation, and the reason for this was to allow the inevitable flurry of bickering to take place. Now that it was established that both halves of the delegation had survived the perilous FTL jump, it was essential to work out just who was in charge of handing out the boiled sweets while the spacecraft were taking off, and other essential duties.

Thankfully, this process was wrapped up with remarkable swiftness. By the time the Xajorkithians had scurried out of their craft and assembled in a rather pleasing fan formation on the landing pad's walkway, everything was settled. Xerut accepted the escort on behalf of the delegation, and the whole group scuttled towards the main trade floor. Some of them had the annoying tendency of walking up corridor walls and scurrying along perpendicular to their escorts, but other than that they arrived in the conference chamber without incident, and quickly got down to the serious business of boggling at the assembled species.

Wow, thought Xerut as she approached a Kratair whom she hoped looked sufficiently important. These guys are tall...

"Precision and fastidiousness upon this facility," she began, a traditional greeting from the tradition of The Standard. "I can't begin to express how excited we all are to make connections like this in the galactic community."

((Sorry about my short absence there.  Emergancy personal matters had me tied up.))

The Kratairian turned to the short amabassador approaching him and returned a smile.  "Glad to hear you're as eager to make this work as we are."

He was cut off as an announcement came through over the intercomm.  //May I have your attention please.  We are pleased to announce that the opening of the senate house is about to begin.  It will be immediatly followed by the inaugaral meeting of the Galactic Trade Confederation.  Please make your way to the lifts at the North end of the conference room and take them up to the senate floor, which should be clearly marked inside.//

"Well then," said the Kratairian delegate to the Xajorkithian ambasador, "It would seem things are finally getting started.  I'll see you at the ceremony then.  Until then, farewell."  The delegate nodded his head in respect before hurrying off to join his fellows of the Kratairian representation.

As the delegates made their way into the common hall before the senate, they were greeted by an increadible sight. The roof of the common hall extended upwards for what seemed like forever, until at the pinacle a faint glimmer of the sky could be seen.  The senate house itself rose as another tower inside the massive room, extening at least a good 500 meters upwards before tapering off in a point.  The walls of both the senate house and the common room were lined with intricate patterns, through which the plasma the Kratair were known for flowed, lighting the entire chamber. 

Now and then up the outer wall of the chamber one could glimpse an array of tinted glass, behind which the many private penthouses of the member races of the GTC sat.  Massive complexes containing numorous luxurious housing units, along with countless annemities.  The Kratair had gone to great lengths to ensure that delgates would be treated as well as possible while here.  After all, it was only logical to assume that a happy delgate would be more willing to make deals and arrangements than a miserable one, no?

As the last lift arrived and its passengers disembarked, eyes turned to the great door to the senate house.  Stretched accross it was a great, vibrant blue ribbon, dwarfing the small podium before it.  A Kratair walked up to the podium and with a quick tap on the microphone and a gaze over the crowd he began...

"Greetings delegates of the galactic community!  I cordially welcome you to the headquarters of what will in a few moments be the Galactic Trade Confederation.  I am Roseko Dendar, head ambasador of the Kratairian representation and first chairman of the GTC.  It is my hope that this alliance serves us all well.  That is brings prosperity to all involved.  Although for now our numbers may be small, I have no doubt that with time we will grow to sizes rivaling that of the greatest alliances of history.  And so, without furthur adeu, I welcome you to the first meeting of the Galactic Trade Confederation!"

With that last word the ribbon was cut and there was a great, echoing thud as the locks within the door were released.  Slowly it swung open to reveal an ornate staircase leading up to another lift.  As the representatives moved forward, they were directed in one race at a time, and the lift swiftly carried them off to their designated booths, overlooking a large mosaic of the known galaxy.  As everyone took their seats, Roseko spoke once again.

"There, now that we're all settled in, there's one point I would like to make before we begin.  Although I am currently the chairman of the confederacy, we are a democracy.  At any time should you feel that I am not doing an acceptable job as your leader here, feel free to speak up about the issue and it will be put to a vote.  Given enough support for your point we will elect a new chairman.  Now then, with that out of the way, I hereby declare the first meeting of the Galactic Trade Confederation to have officially begun.  So then, does anyone wish to bring an issue to the floor?"

Liuonomo raised a claw into the air.

"I am the delegate to the Milika.  One issue to bring forward right away is the trade of technology.  How much trade is allowed, and what technologies are banned from use by GTC members?  Also, their is the issue on individual races power in the Confederacy, how is it limited?"

Roseko smiled and turned towards the Milikain delegate.  "Some very good points, and thank you for bringing them to light, I'll try to address your concerns in order.  There is no limit on trade, in quantities or what is being traded.  The Confederacy is a platform from which trade endevours can be launched, and we do not seek to limit that trade in any way.  Of course, we do ask that if possible you avoid from engaging in any...questionable business that might tarnish the reputation of the GTC, at least not through public channels or in ways in which your actions could be percived as the actions of the GTC as a whole.  A fine example would be renting out a trade floor in order to host a weapon's auction for pirates."

Roseko paused for a moment to collect his thoughts before continuing.  "As for technological restrictions, there are none.  One of the staples of the GTC is that we do not intend to restrict our member races in any way.  There will be no disarmament treaties, no anti-slavery agreements, no development restrictions of any kind.  We feel that what a civilization does is it's own business and we should have no say in it.  As I've said before, the GTC is a tool through which we can all prosper.  What each race plans to do with that prosperity is up to them."

"Finally, the matter of power of individual races in the Confederacy.  As stated before, we are a democracy, and therefore all important matters will be decided on through a vote.  The delegates of each race shall decide amongst themselves what side to support in any issue, and then as a whole, the race will submit their opinion.  That way each race gets equal say in all matters.  As for your control of Rolston itself, if you havn't yet heard, it is open for all member races to inhabit.  It's vast city holds the potential to become the economic center of the Galactic community.  I in fact urge you to send colonists here to help jump start the economy.  The more citizens we have, the faster we can grow.  Of course, as I said before, I can't force you to do this if you don't want to.  The decision lies completley with you."

"Any other questions?"

A large nipper rose up in the far end of the hall.

"I am the main representative from the Orealyianis Monarchy. Dear chairman, we would like to know exactly how the GTC would handle the planet's security.

Would the member peoples be able to assign their military ships to defend the system, or would they have to place them under the command of a Confederate Fleet of sorts?

We are concerned that an imbalance in power and influence might result from the placing of an excessive number of individually controlled military forces within the system's boundaries.

That is, of course, just our humble opinion on the matter."

"On the subject of security provision," a metallic-blue Xajorkithian with a thin crest muttered, "What about the protection of trade routes from pirates? A shared force might be more efficient than everyone just staffing their own guards.."

Another member of the Xajorkithian delegation chimed in, eager to take advantage of a half-second lull in the discussion: "We'd be interested in a mechanism for formalising technology exchange. A patent system, or production licensing.. there's a number of options. This will be especially important for any collaborative research we may undertake.."

"First of all, until a more permanent policing force is put into place, it will have to be self-regulated by each race.  Simply keep in mind that if you are doing something extremley objectionable, it threatens the GTC as a whole, and as such, your investment in it."

"Secondly as the majority seem in favour of a GTC operated defence fleet, it will be aranged.  In my opinion, I feel that perhaps we should elect a head of defence to deal with the task of organizing and managing the fleet.  In fact, why stop there.  Perhaps it would be best if we gave each major division of the GTC it's own representitive here in the senate, thus allowing for much greater organization that had we lumped them all together.  As for your idea of a patenting system.." he said while motioning to the Xajorkithian, "It too can be created underneath the supervision of a representitive."

"At first thought, I can see there being positions for heads of security, defence, technological development, and domestic affairs.  Any other ideas?  Comments?  Or should we get right to nominations.  Of course, if you disagree with this idea, just speak up."

The Supara had sat on the sidelines of the galactic scenes for some time. Over the many years, their population had doubled several times, easily putting them into the trillions with their mindless drones. Supporting such a vast and expansive empire had become troublesome, not only in protecting the borders, but also in the caretaking of so many people. It had put a huge strain on the economy itself and had actually resulted in a large depression that had reduced the population.

As a result, they had come out of their isolation. The Galactic Trade Confederacy appeared to be the ones most prepared to help them regain their balance.

A sizable Suparan fleet arrived out of warp some distance from the massive structure that the Kratair had created. A message was immediately sent out:

//Greetings beings of this trade confederation. Our people, the Suparan people, have come to you in search of help. Our empire is vast, but because of this we have entered a depression. We hope that you will be able to help us in our time of need. In return we have a large market in which you can sell your goods as well as many natural resources that we have not been able to collect. The details can be worked out, but our primary concern is whether or not you can help us. We are sending a delegate forward to discuss this matter face to face.//

While this message was being played out several landers had been launched towards the station. They were full of diplomats capable of thinking for themselves. They arrived and headed towards the large meeting room, hoping to secure a deal.

The Xajorkithian delegation were conferring among themselves.

"We need to get a toe on the ramp here," was the general consensus.

The metallic-blue Xajorkithian who spoke earlier clicked his mandibles loudly into the PA system (the ratcheting sound his peoples' manner of beginning a speech) and spoke.

"The success of any trading alliance pivots on the quality of its trade goods. Poor quality items would reflect poorly on all members of this confederation. It's essential that we build a reputation for producing well-crafted, dependable items. To this end, we suggest the establishment of a body to be responsible for defining standards of production, and monitoring and enforcing compliance to said standards. Furthermore, we believe that our experience means that we are singularly well-placed to administer such a body."

As the two new transmissions were recived, clearence and directions were given.  The senate meeting had already begun and as such they were urged to get there quickly.

Meanwhile, in the senate hall, matters continued after a short announcement informed the delgates of the new arrivals.

"Alright then." Roseko said, continuing the matter discussed before the interuption, "If there's no objections, and no other volunteers for those positions, then Xajorkithian's shall head up the trade administration, while the Milika shall take control of the patenting and research sectors.  Any other volunteers?  I feel it is important that each member race takes control of at least one aspect of the GTC's operation.  The dispersal of control will reduce the risks of coruption while also ensuring that each important sector is properly represented."

     The Orealyianis representative from before raises it's nipper once again. "The Orealyianis could manage security operations until a formal defense force for the GTC is established. We have a slight surplus of equipment that we could contribute to the creation of an official GTC defense force.

     Also, SPA forces are always ready to give a helping hand in case of emergencies."

A Goonal diplomatic starship comes out of hyperspace/subspace/Z-space/slipspace/whatever and proceeds to land. J'hok and his aides are quickly escorted inside and given a brief statement of what's happened so far.
Once inside and aware of what has transpired, J'hok raises his hand and states, "The Goonals are most qualified for legalizing operations, such as scrutinizing fine print, evaluating contracts, and eliminating loopholes. The GTC cannot perform exploitable trades and agreements. A legalizing department is essential to create and maintain a good reputation. I humbly ask that you all recognize that fact. Thank you." J'hok sits down.

A hologram of a Mon-Krai lit up at one end of the Hall. Of all the Races that would be part of the GTC, the Mon-Krai were the second oldest, and the most technology advanced in the Confederacy. The Mon-Krai announced to the other Embassadors "Sorry for not showing up in person, fellow delegates. A remake of the Origanal 'The Curse Anew' was released, and our entire race was put on a standstill. However, we have managed to make time to send this Hologram over, however my time is limited, so let me get to buisiness.

Our first matter of importance is Intergration, I am asuming this treaty also allows Open Borders? If so, we should make it clear now weather we allow immagrants, for Open Borders create a swarm of Immagrants heading to the richer areas, while richer citezens will no Doubt buy huge tracks of land in poorer empires which need money, for their own Private ventures.

Secondly, we, the Mon-Krai, will take control of the Scientific and Technological Operations. No offense to the Milika, but we are a far more appropriate choice for the job, your race is young and un-experianced, we have a good million years worth of undisturbed reasearch from Pre-Space Age scientists. You spent a good few thousand years apon you planet before you met the Bliss of Space, correct? I do not mean offence, but you do not have the knowlage of the Scientific strength to lead the Confederacy's research.

Liuonomo spoke up, "It is not within your purview to decide who has which position.  The decision has already been made, you could have been punctual, but I guess the "great" Mon-Krai are above common courtesy.  Choose a different position, there are many more open ones."

The Suparan delegates had arrived and sat quietly watching the current debates. They would wait until everything was settled before they announced their problem for discussion.

In the meantime the Head Delegate, a highly esteemed Cerebrate, cut in to the conversation.

"If you wish for this trade confederacy to work, you should give the jobs to those most qualified. If you are to separate them into who wants what this venture will surely fail. Do not bicker over something as insignificant as this.

While we are speaking of heading separate departments, the Supara ask that they head a department or bureau specializing in the distribution of products. We believe we are most qualified because projected statistics show that most products will be consumed by the Suparan race. Along with this, we have a sizeable fleet set aside specifically for the movement of goods. While there is no doubt that each race will be able to transport their own goods, a single department that specializes in this area would do wonders to help the management of this trade union."

"The Mon-Krai have not proven to be better than us yet, so until we falter or fail, the position should remain ours." Liuonomo was a little perturbed by this.  It was an invitation to better themselves, but all that happened was getting toyed with.

Roseko stood for a moment before speaking up.  "Please, please, there's no need for argument.  As I've said before, we are a democracy.  With the Mon-Krai putting themselves forward and what I interpreted as a second nomination from the Suparan delegate, the position of head of science and development must be put to a vote.  Feel free to confer among your fellow delegates as to whom you choose to support and then enter your vote into the console."

Roseko then turned to address the Goonal and Suparan.  "As for your requests, I agree with both of you in that what you have suggested is essential, and I belive you when you say you excel at your respective fields.  You are free to take charge of these things, but as they deal heavily with the management of trade itself, your sectors may at times fall under the jurisdiction of the trade administration headed up by the Xajorkithian."

"Finally, if there's no objections, I grant the Orealyianis their request in heading up Security.  Just for the record," he said, turning to the Orealyianis delegates, "is it planetside security that you are volunteering for or above world, monitoring the safety of the system and trade routes?"

((I'll try to get a poll up for the election of our Head of Development, and don't worry Kenotai, even if you lose the development sector, I'm sure you can hold onto the patenting, as that covers a bit of a different area.))

((EDIT: Running into a bit of trouble with the poll.  I'll ask LadyM if there's anyway to add a poll to an already created thread.  Until that gets sorted out, feel free to just PM me your votes.))

     "Dear chairman Dendar, we are truly honored to serve as chief of GTC security. We will do our best to maintain a peaceful and constructive environment for all GTC members.", the Orealyian representative replied. "Regarding your question. We would like to manage both until a fleet is formally established. Truth be told, we are more familiar with dealing with encounters in space than on land, but until a planet-based defense force is established, we could take the responsibility of protecting both fields in the meantime."

As the results of the election came up on-screen, Roseko gave them a quick look-over before reporting.  "The votes are in and it has been decided that the Milika shall continue running the Department of Research and Development.  Now that that's settled, are there any other issues to bring up before we finish?" He turned towards the hologram of the Mon-Krai, "Would your people care to take control of some other sector in lieu of the one you wanted?"

"The Department of Colonisation manages the proper funding of the frontier planets, for example, making sure individual colonies do not soak up too much of their owner's funding, by managing the proper allowances by said Colony. We would also manage colonisation volentiers on Unified GTC planets, and advising member states on the best sector to start colonising"

Turning to answer the Milika's question first, Roseko stated, "It is up to you to decide what you wish to look into with your funding, but keep in mind one of our primary goals is to turn a profit on our endevours.  Just keep that in mind."

Turning back to the Mon-Krai, Roseko continued, "Now then, on to your request.  While at this point there is little need for residential colonies and the like, there is still the matter of off-world mining and resourse aquisition.  Therefore, I grant you your requested post.  I would just ask that you keep in mind that your primary goal, for now at least, is to aquire, survey and develop planets and systems that hold profitable resources and trade items."

One of J'hok's aides whispers in his ear.
"What? Them? Oh, right, I remember now. Wait, what? Let me see that datapad! They are? Oh, my! Oh, dear! Well, all right. Thank you, my aide."
J'hok stands up and speaks.
"Excuse me, Chairman Dendar, but it seems that, um...well, I'd better explain first. You see, we Goonals have conquered two sentient reptilian species, the Serleep and the Dellip, on a planet known as Kalal. Instead of enslaving them, we let them keep their biotech-age technologies and cultures, and we also introduced our own advanced technology to them. Things have been going peacefully for a while, but one of my aides, Er'sfak Chonn, has just informed me that the stock market on Kalal has just crashed dramatically. The economy is in turmoil, and they need immediate transfer of funds. Billions of citizens have gone broke already. I don't really deserve to speak for the Goonal race as a whole right now, that's the Supreme Council's job. But seeing as they are absent here, I will speak nonetheless.
"Fellow members of the Galactic Trade Confederacy! Kratair, Mon-Krai, Milika, Naescvor, Xajorkithians, Orealyianaris, and Supara. I humbly ask you - no, I beg you, please help our allies in their desperate hour. If we all do not help, then there will be one more civilization crashing down in a terrible spectacle. So please, at least try to help."
J'hok sits back down.

((Btw, this is a Serleep:

And this is a Dellip:

Just in case you wanted to know.))

Roseko sat in thought for a minute or so before replying, "Well what do you propose?  A loan might be feasible, and could potentially help to jump-start their economy.  I don't think a free transfer of funds would be possible though.  That would simply take the problem of one race and spread it among the members of the confederation.  However, given that with a loan, we will be reimbursed over time, it remains a possibility.  What are your thoughts delegates?"

     "We are willing to loan with zero interest since this is quite a situation.", the Orealyianis representative added. "However, just like what the Milika have said earlier, we really have to base it on something first or it will have almost zero value to the receiving party. We could base the loans on the general mass or value of our currencies' equivalent substances or services."

"We are sorry to interrupt the current problem, but as broadcast in our first transmission, we wish to point out that the Supara are also in an economic crisis and have come to you specifically in need of aid. While it is possible to send loans to both groups, it would probably cause too great a strain on this new confederacy and suggest that aid only be sent to one race unless this council decides otherwise.

At this point we ask you, will you fund us with a loan?"

Continuing on, "we are willing to infuse the economy on Kalan with 1000 Mokos, or 500 Galactic Credits," Liuonomo sat down again.

"The Xajorkithian Uniform Steering Committee's budget contains an annual designation of 0.035% of gross national product for foreign aid. As there have been no foreign nations on Xajorkis since the Unification, we have a significant amount stored in abeyance for this purpose, and would be willing to distribute it 50-50 between Kalal and the Suparans. Further investment can be provided, either as a loan or at super-market-rate purchase of stock."

     Hmm... I should probably contact the Grand Hall by now...

     Taking out a small communication device from his *fold necklace, he adjusts the device to match the frequency of their ship parked in the terminal.

     "Musta, tosa ko da. Tana saba gadana mana, perada ba ja-..."
     "Hello, this is me. We want to report that it's a success, though there seems to be some pro-..."~

     However, his message was interrupted when the escort right next to him tapped his shoulder, a sense of urgency can be felt from his shaking nipper. "Sir, there seems to be, umm... some... problems...", he said while bringing up a small 4d map of the entire sector.

     "I see.", the representative slowly replied. He looked at the map for quite some time before carrying on. "Call them up."

     "Yes sir."

     In any case, the representative turned his attention back towards the topic at hand, waiting for the chairman's decision on the matter.





*Fold necklace - a necklace using basic space-fold technology to store a large, but not in any way infinite amount of objects. Capacity depends on size and extent of space folded.

Roseko turned to the Milika delegate to respond to the nomination, "Very well.  We will arrange and manage the loan through the GTC.  All donations will be divided evenly among the needy parties, and when the time comes that the loan is repaid, it will be spread out among GTC members depending on how much each donated."

     Taking the chance, the Orealyianis representative raised his nipper after remembering something of potential importance. "Dear chairman, we have heard some news of the Enlightened Union's dissolution and it's replacement by the newly established Libera Unio. It would seem to benefit the confederacy if we take this chance to expand our trade routes to encompass former Union territory. The demand for non-union products and services will have probably increased since the previous incident."

A Sombreron barges through the chamber doors and walks in an overly casual manner.

Brimming with a face of confidence and charisma he speaks overbearingly through the crowd like a professional salesman.

"Greetings! Members of this board. I'd like to congratulate you on your sincere efforts to spread prosperity and trade to the far reaches of the galaxy."

"Allow me to introduce myself. My name is Corion. I represent the Sombreron Guild of Entrepreneurs. And we are interested in helping your cause."

"We firmly believe that all trade should prosper without restrictions. We bring goods to all in various convenient locations. Thanks to the success that is Beyon City."

"Understandably, more must be done to reach even further as we still see the demand warranted in an ever expanding galaxy."

"But to make sure we reach them, we must diplomatically pave the way so we can better establish trade routes. That is where I come in delegates."

"I'd like to propose myself as a professional Business Relations Specialist. I will make sure we can negotiate deals with astronomical success. Whadaya say?"

Nodding in response to the Orealyianis representative, Roseko turned back to Corion.

"Very well," he replied with a grin, "We are pleased to have on board with our endevour.  It will certainly far more benificial for us all to have Beyon and the GTC working together rather than in rivalry.  I have one question though.  Is your Guild of Entrepreneurs joining us as representitives of your race or as an independant party?"

"The guild is an independent party. We once had our entire race affiliated in unity, but our brethren on our home planet Shivol have isolated themselves from Beyon. They no longer share the same endeavors of success in trade as we do, preferring to adopt the ways of ecology. Hence, we are no longer associated with them."

The Suparan delegate spoke his thoughts.

//We appreciate any and all economic aid that should be sent to help our race. As for the Sombrerons we hope that this deal will further enhance our financial capabilities.

In the case of the Union, we think it would be wise to infiltrate this market. Currently they are in chaos and have no real retaliation against any moves we could make against them. Their people are in need of products and overall aid. Now would be the right time to move. At the same time we should conduct negotiations with this new government forming and hope to establish further ties with the nation. If they are able to rebuild we will have a powerful ally, but if they fail we have a jumpstart on all other organizations on taking over that wealthy market.//

"Very well then, we are pleased to have you aboard." Roseko stated, turning to the Suparan delegate, "As for our dealings with the Union, it has already been decided that the Kloonian representitive will meet with them.  Until such time as a groundwork is set up with them, I feel it may be potentially dangerous to tread on their toes.  Of course, if any of you agree with the Suparan delegate on this matter, speak up.  Otherwise, I feel we should consider this matter closed."

Vice RE Liuonomo raised his hand frantically into the air.  "Chairman Dendar!  Yes, excuse me, but there seems to have been some sort of quantum disturbance in a nearby sector.  One of our scouts (one man ships) responded, and as it turns out, a whole new system had appeared out of no where!  We made contact, and they call themselves the "Vykusi".  Should we send a fully equipped ship to investigate?  Not only that, but we feel that delegates from the other races present should come with us, if you don't mind."

((Okay, I've thought it over, and the Serleep and Dellip officially do not exist anymore. They were a mistake I made; the Goonals wouldn't conquer two entire sentient species like that. So they do not exist. They never did exist. Sorry for the necropost, but I felt that it was necessary.))

//Greetings, GTC.

This is King Foriza of the Orealyianis Monarchy.

We wish to inform you, if you already haven't received word of it, of the recent events regarding two of the GTC's members. The Supara and the Milika.

The GPA and the Milika have independently submitted reports of a certain Suparan contingent attacking a Milikan cruiser in a newly charted system. Casualties have not yet been calculated, but it is, sadly, expected to reach a very worrisome value, both directly and indirectly.

As chief of security, we shall do our best to maintain as much a semblance of peace as possible in all the GTC's trade networks. However, I fear that if these hostilities escalate, we shall be forced to apply indefinite force on the Supara in order to ensure the safe travel of both public and private goods and personnel in the GTC's network of trade routes. Especially the ones closely related to the two races in question.

I expect to hear you're side on this some time soon, dear chairperson. I shall personally land on GTC HQ in due time.

That is all, for now.//
